A deployable flow control device for a flow surface over which fluid having a fluid boundary layer flows which fluid boundary layer exhibits certain dynamics is disclosed. The deployable flow control device comprises a flow effector which is movably attached to a housing which is attachable, either initially or retrofitably, to a flow surface. The flow effector can position in a modular sub-housing removably attachable to the housing. The flow effector is deployed into and retracted out of the boundary layer on the flow surface and thereby controls the b...
[ What is claimed is:] [1.] A deployable flow control device for use with a flow surface over which fluid forming a fluid boundary layer flows and which said fluid boundary layer exhibits certain dynamics, comprising:a. a flow effector; andb. a sealable, flexible element having two elastic states defined as quiescent and deformed operably connected to said flow effector such that said flow effector is deployed into and retracted out of said fluid boundary layer flowing over said flow surface based upon the elastic state of said sealable, flexible element...
